Water lilies are extraordinary plants. Their flowers and leaves float on the water, swaying in the waves. Their long stems hold them in a place where they grow. They are as if anchored to the bottom of the lake. The long stem, the place from which the plant grows – these are details let’s call them – technical details. They serve so that we can watch and admire this fantastic phenomenon – flowers and leaves on the water. Many people admire this nature’s wonder. The most famous admirer of these flowers is Claude Monet. When we hear: water lilies, we immediately think of water lilies by Monet. You can’t see the flowers in my painting. They have not yet bloomed. But there are already leaves. They have broken free from their anchors, floating freely upwards, like independent entities.
